Place Matters Profile

Once a wedding catering hall, Casino Puerto Rico's huge second-floor ballroom featured family-oriented acts with boleros and danzas. Downstairs, the Teatro Casino presented Latin music's top artists such as Tito Puente and Vincentico Valdes. In the venue's earlier incarnation as Casino Theater, local audiences enjoyed movies and Irish-oriented vaudeville.
